Miranda Hodgkins has only ever wanted one thing: to marry Robert Carlisle. And she simply can't wait a moment longer. During the Carlisle family masquerade ball, Miranda boldly sneaks into his bedchamber with seduction on her mind. Soon she's swept into rock-hard arms for the most breathtaking kiss of her life. But when the masks come off, she's horrified to find herself face-to-face with Sebastian, the Duke of Trent—Robert's formidable older brother.
Shocked to find Miranda in his bed, Sebastian quickly offers her a deal to avoid scandal: he'll help her win his brother's heart if she'll find him the perfect wife. But what begins as a simple negotiation soon spirals out of control. For the longer this reformed rake tries to make a match for Miranda, the more he wants to keep her all to himself.
Ok so I know I like the hit people in books over the head, but Sebastian did deserve it later on in the book. *hits him over the head*
Miranda is, how to explain her really, she loves her village, her work, she is lively, and maybe not the most refined. But she was a delightful heroine. Except for when she went into her crush's bedroom *hits her over the head too* That was such a stupid thing to too.
While Sebastian used to be out there, he is now proper and just wants to find a good wife.
They are so good for each other, but she likes his brother and he wants the perfect boring wife. Which made it enjoyable to see them fall in love. Except for that time when I wanted to hit him cos he thought stupid things. Oh stupid men. Which also made me dislike his brothers at one time cos I wanted them to be upset. And see I am rambling, but you will see.
